consume rs and businesses large or small than fedex? i uh expected the market to be obliterated. [ sell, sell, sell ] [ house of pain ] yet what did we get? the dow rallied 12 points. the s&p losing just .11%. minuscule. i have been schooled. i know you don't want to hear about how confused i am, how mystified. you want me to explain what happened in a way that makes it clear and rational. if you read my midnight tweets @jimcramer about how fedex's blown quarter was like a running back with a blown knee going into the big fantasy game or the big game between the cowboys and giants meaning a tough session ahead of us then you know i got the market wrong. hey, i don't like being wrong. i don't like thinking federal express can preannounce negative earnings and out barely affects the averages.
the dow didn't go down. uh-uh prefer markets that are predictable, logical. this one is not acting like any other market i can recall because of the myriad other times fedex missed the mark. almost every single time it brought the whole stock market down hard. that's how integral the company is to the transport index which you know i follow. part of the process of uh trying to be a good investor is to figure out where you went wrong, as painful as it is. especially when you are in front of a camera. what made you -- meaning me -- so sure fedex would impact the market at all. why didn't it do what i thought? out's like solving a homicide that didn't occur. so let's get to the noncrime scene. first federal express fell little on the news dropping only $1.74, 2%.
my thinking when i tweeted last night would be fedex would fall three or four bucks. isn't that monumental? the company talked about worldwide slowing saying people don't want to pay up for next day shipping. that's not good at all. fedex might be caught up in the same so bad that it's positive vortex that it's affecting so many other stocks now. the idea that the future could be brighter than the past in central banks around the globe. attempt to save the debt. [ buy, buy, buy ] in fact, fedex may be the perfect microcosm of the moment. some believe at this time tomorrow we'll know the european central bank is getting european economies growing again. ♪ hallelujah if you think that's going to happen, you've got to say, all right, let me think. how do i play it?
what stock would most benefit from the ecb doing the right thing. we need a stock that benefits from a rapid increase in commerce. worldwide. we need a stock that's global in reach. one that can capitalize off more business activity. we need a stock where the bad news is known but the good news isn't factored in yet. hey, we need fedex. in other words you don't want to sell this stock if you think the good central bank news is coming. you will sell a stock barely up for the year that's leveraged to play a return to robust global growth. you would sell it at a discount to where it would be if the ecb says anything good at all. second, as much as i did think it was big news it wasn't like the preannouncement was a true shocker to those who followed the group closely. six weeks ago, united parcel, a little pin action here. they trade together. told us pretty much exactly what
fedex said. plenty of people must have expected the news and didn't regard it as news. just confirmation of what u.p.s. told us in july. the companies aren't that different in terms of reach or profit margin. not like the stocks levered to better economic news. they have been on fire lately. suddenly they were hit by the fedex 2 x 4. in the last ten days caterpillar went from 90 to 82. they were up nine cents today. why else didn't we go down? when i try to predict the market direction there was only one indicator. i watched the jjc. that's a metal incredibly sensitive to growth in china. i watched the fse which measures the strongness or weakness of the euro. as negative as fedex might be to
the overall scheme of things in a global economy. strong copper could mean the chinese communists -- don't want to use the american flag. hey, a shoe horn. communists mean a stronger economy because they will do something. the chinese communists take part of the world metal. while fedex is a global company we are worried about europe first and china second. they are flashing green, not red all day. finally there are enough good things happening domestically that we are willing to isolate fedex as an international debacle, not domestic. if we are investigating a noncrime like the lack of a market homicide maybe we should call today's action law and order suv instead of svu.
suv sales have been off the charts. that's fabulous auto sales at a pace of 14.5 million cars sold. that's a boom time figure, not a slow down. we didn't get many earning reports but we got dollar general and cons and they were strong. you could say it's redistributing the economy where people go to dollar stores. i i say out's still consumers spending. conn's is goods for homes including furniture and bedding, not b-e-t-t-i-n-g. like dollar general it reported better than expected earnings and boosted the forecast. conn's was up huge, a reminder of the strength of the housing cycle around the country. housing and autos are huge. they are still accelerating, the numbers tell me. not declining. put it together and the down side surprise of federal express isn't much surprise at all. isn't able to counter a strong domestic retail or housing market along with a rise in copper and the euro saying europe could be doing the right
thing. there is enough hope out there courtesy of huge bond buying and pro growth policies from the european central bank. many market players must be thinking, huh, fedex, rear-view mirror, not forward. the other items seem to confirm the diagnosis. this is the bottom line of today. i don't like figuring wrong about a piece of corporate news. worse than getting it wrong is not figuring out why i got it wrong. i'm satisfied that i have come up with the answers unless, of course, european central bank does nothing good tomorrow. in that case we'll see hideous decline tomorrow we should have seen today. kevin in north carolina, please. kevin. >> caller: hey, good evening. >> good evening. >> caller: retired navy boo-yah to you. >> thank you for serving back at you, sir. how can i help? >> caller: thanks for the in the money call strategy. been very helpful. >> it's a way to hedge your bets. capture the upsides with less capital and don't get hit by the down side.

>> boo-yah back. >> caller: i'm an action alerts member. i have been following your show for three years now. >> thank you. >> caller: i love getting back to even. >> what a great book. >> caller: thank you. i love your presentation and the care and respect you give the guests. >> i have guys and gals that are winners constantly. let's go to work. >> caller: i told hershey last month after making mad money and cocoa is way up today. >> still very close to the 52-week high. we need a 5 to 8% pull back. stephanie link on again today on "fast money" since she works with me. i have been at this a long time. on days i find confusing, i have to tell you, i play with an open hand. it is worth looking at why i was confused.
there is a lot of craziness. fedex didn't bring the market down. there are enough reasons to convince me that maybe fedex is telling the truth about this market. "mad money" will be back. >> announcer: coming up, the s-word. some investors think it's filthy, but tonight cramer is showing you where smart speculation can pay off big. and later, huddle up. while most are focused on the rosters, tonight, cramer has an inside look at the financial side of football. it's the blocking and tackling behind one of the biggest brands in the world when cramer lines up with a starting member of the nfl management team just ahead. plus, fill her up? holly frontier has been in the sweet spot for refiners turning abundant oil into fuel for the nation's recovery.
